Top Reasons to Go to Manchester, Liverpool, and the Peak District

Manchester theater and nightlife: The city's theater scene keeps getting more exciting, while bustling café-bars and pubs, together with ornate Victorian-era beer houses, mean there are plenty of ways to continue your night out in style.

Liverpool culture, old and new: This once-run-down merchant city, already a must-see for fans of the Fab Four, has reinvented itself as a cultural hub with plenty of dining, lodging, and nightlife hot spots.

Outdoor activities in the Peak District: Even a short hike in Edale or High Peak reveals the craggy, austere beauty for which the area is famous, but cycling, caving, and other sports make the Peaks a veritable natural playground.

Grand country houses: The stately Chatsworth House and the Tudor manor Haddon Hall will enchant fans of both Downton Abbey and quintessentially English architecture alike.
